K-M School training exercise

The Kasson-Mantorville School District, in cooperation with the Kasson Police Department, Dodge County Sheriff's Office, Dodge County First Responders, Dodge County Fire Department, Dodge County Public Health and other agencies, will conduct a training exercise from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 18.

Students are not in school this day, and they will not participate in the training.

During the training exercise, the District and all emergency responding entities will be conducting a simulation at K-M High School that will involve a significant police presence during the morning. The high school will be completely inaccessible during the training to anyone not directly participating in the simulation.

The safety of the students and staff is the District's highest priority. Though it is highly unlikely that the district would encounter an active intruder, the simulation is being held to ensure that emergency personnel become more familiar with our facilities and are prepared should a threat occur.

"Run, hide, fight"

After researching many alternatives and protocols for school districts, Kasson-Mantorville schools is enhancing its "active intruder" protocol from "lock down" to "run, hide, fight."

"Run, hide, fight" is a protocol recommended by the Department of Homeland Security to promote decision-making in an active intruder situation. The goal of the new protocol is to be unpredictable and give decision-making power back to the individuals experiencing the crisis.
